Ok,  what I have is a 2.8 P4 with a gig of ram.  I have two graphics cards, the first one is a Radeon 9800 Pro 128, the other is a Radeon 9600 XT 256.  What would give me the better graphics?  The better card? Or the newer card with more RAM.  I will probably try both and see what kind of performance I get.  I currently have the 9800 pro in my system and I have doom3 with high graphics running in 1028 and I get about 45-60 frames a second.  I was going to give the other card to a friend but I would like to keep the card that will give me the best performance.  And on that note, where would I be able to find a good 3D Benchmark program for free?  Or even one to buy?

Thanx guys.

The 9800 Pro is much better than the 9600 XT: http://www20.tomshardware.com/graphic/20031229/vga-charts-03.html
Benchmark programs: SiSoft Sandra, or 3DMark2001
